I always thought the longer you take to decide on an investment,
the better it turns out.
This keeps me from rash decisions.
Asset allocation should be well thought out, to fit your personal profile and state of mind. It's different for everyone.
This ( and other boards) are great for answering ones questions.
Good Luck

MEG, dsemmler, yobria, and all. Thanks for the welcome to Retirement Investing. To tell you the truth I'm a little overwhelmed. The Portfolio Allocation seminar is metering out lessons, while we try to jump ahead on the seminar discussion board, and I bury myself with print-outs, online links, discussion boards, and my circumstances. About 3am this morning I reached a point where I was this close |<>| to understanding it all - like a great vision of personal financial clarity. Then in an instant it was gone and it was just me with too many windows open, printed messages that I couldn't make relevant to my situation, and a feeling of impending doom.

A little sleep and my mood improved noticeably and I thought I would spend some time lurking on the Retire Early board as suggested by dsemmler. HA! I couldn't move my eyes from the screen as I plowed through messages in chronological order and the hair on the back of my neck stood straight out. It was an effort to remind myself that I could make it all go away by just closing my eyes. I have learned quite a bit over the last few days. Most importantly I have learned to go slow and pace myself. I always thought that financial planning would be dry and boring. What a wild place. :-)
